New to the underground photography scene, but here are a couple of pictures I may as well enter from my first two shoots underground, playing around with different equipment whilst Kent University and Oxford University were over!

Image 1 – ‘Warmth’ – Virgin Circuit Passage, Boho Caves, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland – Here we see a caver lighting the candle of another, allowing for them to explore and view the formations within the cave.




Image 2 – Legnabrocky Way, Marble Arch Caves, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland – Here we see Elif from Kent University taking in the formations through the final crawl section of the Legnabrocky Way. I particularly enjoy how the flash has nicely bounced off the ‘Moon Milk’ behind.




Image 3 – Virgin Circuit Passage, Boho Caves, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland – Here we see two cavers taking a short break whilst the faffing of photography takes place! Nicely kitted out for this short horizontal cave system!




If you are ever interested in coming over to Northern Ireland to cave, please do not hesitate to give me a message and I can organise meeting up. There is plenty of accommodation, including the brilliant Hoo cavers hut! A must stay when in Fermanagh.

Image 1 – ‘Warmth’
Crop the black left side out a bit to add impact to the main pic.  A refreshingly nice warm image, don't need to blast out everything with mega LEDs.

On behalf of ZombieCake who is too busy to post right now...

Series of photos taken to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the MCG a few years ago showcasing the equipment from each of the decades that the group has been in existence.  Recreation is from roughly the middle of each decade.  Photos were all taken in the same location in Swildons Hole.  The photos were edited to give the feel of the photographic media in use at the time...

1950s with boiler suit, texolex helmet, hemp/ash ladder, premier carbide lamp.

1960s with Goon suit (yes it is a real one) electron ladder, NiFe cell.

1970s wet suit, Oldham lamp, plastic helmet.

1980s plastic oversuit, expedition carbide lamp, early SRT kit with Jumars (note these were taken from the current SRT kit of one of our members) and JB fibreglass helmet (also still in regular use)

1990s TSA oversuit, Speleotechnics FX3 lamp and fibreglass helmet, Petzl SRT rig

2000s, Warmbac cordura oversuit, Speleotechnics Headlite with 7 LEDs, Petzl Ecrin helmet.

2) Another York Caving Club affair - Sir Francis Mine, Swaledale - The Lift Chamber. Equipment - An Inglesport wetsuit!

3) You guessed it, Lee and Andy of the YCC head to the big window of Alum Pot. Equipment - An Inglesport brekkie to cure a hangover!

Hi Gardouth, I don’t want to sound sanctimonious or preachy . . . but ‘when I were a lad’ I used to climb short ladders without a lifeline . . . until  I met someone who had fallen off a ladder on Valley Entrance pitch (actually, I think the ladder broke) and had never walked since.

NB: theyorkshireminer – love your GG picture.

Fulk; what is not visible in Gary's second picture is that I am clipped into the ladder via a karabiner on my main mallion. The ladder itself is backed up with slings. Obviously, there's still scope for the ladder to snap so this is by no means the right approach to ladder safety and you are right to highlight that ladders should always have a separate independent belay... good practice should always prevail.
For Gary's first photo, the model is clipped into the separately belayed rope... although via a belt which of course is not intended or rated for this purpose... so yes, bad practice  :spank:

Anyway, let's not let this thread turn into a discussion on ladder safety...  ;D
